Centennial School District To Broadcast Alerts
- By Dian Schaffhauser
Centennial School District in Bucks County, PA has installed CyberData's voice over IP (VoIP) Ceiling Speakers and AcroVista's BellCommander to provide general paging, scheduled audio, and emergency notifications at Klinger Middle School. The system is operating on a 3Com VCX V7000 platform.
The ceiling speakers connect to existing LANs with a cable connection. The speaker is powered via a standard Ethernet cable (PoE), eliminating the need for an external power supply.
The school bell system provides scheduled audio, paging, and emergency notification applications. The software is in use at Crean Lutheran South High School in Irvine, CA and St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School in The Woodlands, TX.
